Fight for Your Right to Read: Banned Books Week 2013 | Selection Toolkit | Scoop.it
From 2000 to 2009, 8 out of the top 10 books on "The Top 100 Banned/Challenged Books" were specifically written for teens or children. In fact out of that list of 100, 67 were books for teens or children. Titles such as the Harry Potter series (#1), the Alice series (#2), The Chocolate War (#3), The Perks of Being a Wallflower (#10), Captain Underpants series (#13) and the His Dark Materials series (#8). All these titles and more were considered too dangerous and too inappropriate to be read by those they were intended for.

Banned Books Week: A Book List

Banned Books Week: A Book List | Selection Toolkit | Scoop.it
Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. It was launched in 1982 in response to a sudden surge in the number of challenges to books in schools, bookstores and libraries. The celebration is typically held during the last week of September (this year it is September 22-28) and it is meant to draw national attention to the harms of censorship. Even though books continue to be banned, part of the celebration is the fact that, in a majority of cases, many of the books have remained available.
